Your Mind is What Your Brain Does for a Living: Overall

In all honesty, I wasn’t a fan of this book. I have tried reading it multiple times and found it a bit hard to follow. While there are some interesting studies, a lot of it feels like the authors opinion. While this is okay, it really wasn’t what I was expecting out the book. There are some very interesting exercises, however,  and some interesting things to consider. I personally liked some of the thought exercises and recommendations from the exercises. Based on my own experience with the book, I give Your Mind is What Your Brain Does for a Living a C- rating.

    I definitely appreciate your honest opinion . The book does sound interesting and I do believe that you mind plays a huge role in how you are today in your life… I think study has shown if you think positive , positive will show itself and vice versa with negative thoughts… Thanks again for share and great review @tisonlyme143
